ISIS Closing on Baghdad

The Daily Mail reports fighting between ISIS forces and Iraqi forces for the town of Baqubah--the last major town before reaching Baghdad.

The story goes on to indicate that ISIS is receiving support from pro-Saddam Hussein loyalists. It looks like a "caliphate" of "Greater Syria" may become a reality.
